Tyhee Gold Agrees to Merge With Santa Fe Gold

Company to be Called Tyhee Gold

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/23/14 -- Tyhee Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE: TDC) (the "Company" or "Tyhee") is pleased to report that it has entered into an agreement (the "Merger Agreement") with Santa Fe Gold Corporation ("Santa Fe") whereby, subject to certain conditions, Tyhee, acting through a newly-incoporated Delaware subsidiary corporation, will acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding securities, including dilutive securities, of Santa Fe in exchange for securities of Tyhee (the "Transaction"). Santa Fe (OTCQB: SFEG) currently holds a number of precious metals properties in New Mexico, USA, including the Summit gold mine, which began commercial production in 2012 before mining activities were suspended in November 2013, primarily due to operational challenges brought on by capital constraints.

Trading of Tyhee shares, which was halted at the request of the Company on January 17th, is expected to resume shortly following this announcement. The unusual length of this halt has been due primarily to a number of regulatory and financial complexities related to the Transaction, which have now been resolved.

The Merger Agreement, which will be filed under Tyhee's profile on SEDAR, follows the completion of extensive due diligence by Tyhee's management and technical team, including comprehensive discussions, site inspections and a review of Santa Fe's financial situation. The board of directors of the Company has concluded that, following a significant restructuring of Summit's operations, mine plan and debt position - including a cash injection estimated at US$19 million by Tyhee after completion of the Transaction into the Summit Mine and Santa Fe's wholly owned Lordsburg Mill - the mine and mill can be re-started in 2014, with further production expansions scheduled to be implemented over the subsequent several months.

Following completion of the Transaction, Tyhee's President and CEO, Brian Briggs, will continue in that capacity. Pierce Carson, PhD., Santa Fe's CEO, who has had an accomplished international mining career spanning over 35 years with extensive experience in directing exploration, development and mining of base metals, precious metals and industrial minerals and in administering public companies, will join Tyhee's board of directors and has agreed to consult for Tyhee on a part-time basis.

Upon completion of this merger, Tyhee's core assets will include the Summit mine and Lordsburg Mill in New Mexico, as well as a significant growth asset, the larger but longer term Yellowknife Gold Project ("YGP") in Canada's Northwest Territories. (Details of these assets are provided below.)

The board of directors of both Santa Fe and Tyhee believe that the Transaction will bring significant benefits to each of the companies and their shareholders, and accordingly, the directors of both Santa Fe and Tyhee have unanimously supported the proposed Transaction.

The Transaction

Shareholders of Santa Fe will receive 0.9 of a common share of Tyhee (the "Tyhee Shares"), and 0.45 of a warrant to purchase a common share of Tyhee (the "Tyhee Warrants") in consideration for each Santa Fe share (the "Santa Fe shares"). The Tyhee Warrants will be subject to certain restrictions on vesting and exercisability. Each whole Tyhee Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Tyhee Share at a price of CDN$0.25 for a period of four years following the closing of the Transaction. All currently outstanding convertible securities of Santa Fe will, subject to the approval and policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, entitle the holder thereof to acquire, upon exercise, such number of Tyhee Shares and Tyhee Warrants as such holder would have been entitled to acquire as a result of the Transaction had the convertible securities been exercised immediately prior to the closing of the Transaction. Existing Tyhee and Santa Fe shareholders will own approximately 78% and 22%, respectively, of the outstanding shares of Tyhee's common shares following the Transaction. Outstanding convertible securities of Santa Fe will entitle the holders to acquire common shares and warrants of Tyhee upon completion of the Merger. Tyhee expects to set aside approximately an additional 92.5 million Tyhee common shares for issuance upon exercise of outstanding Santa Fe convertible securities and the Tyhee Warrants issued in connection with the Transaction.

It is anticipated that the Transaction will be structured as a combination of Santa Fe into a newly-formed Delaware subsidiary of Tyhee, by way of a plan of arrangement or other transaction that is supported by the management and board of directors of Santa Fe. Further, completion of the Transaction, which will require the approval of Santa Fe's shareholders, is targeted for the second quarter of 2014. Closing of the Transaction is also subject to customary closing conditions, including receipt of the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and any other regulatory approvals. In addition, the closing of the Transaction is subject to the completion of certain debt restructurings by Santa Fe, noted below, and the completion of a minimum of US$20 million financing by Tyhee, also discussed below.

Upon closing, Tyhee will continue trading on the TSX Venture Exchange and plans are in place to apply for a potential US listing on the OTCQX as well as a German listing. The resultant increased visibility is expected to heighten Tyhee's recognition as a diversified, well-capitalized, low-cost gold-silver miner, explorer and developer.

As a key part of this transaction process, Tyhee has negotiated the terms of debt restructuring with Santa Fe's three primary creditors, Waterton Global Resource Management, Sandstorm Gold Ltd. and International Goldfields Limited, to restructure the terms of Santa Fe's indebtedness. Closing of the Transaction is conditional upon the creditors entering definitive agreements for such restructuring.

In the event that the Merger Agreement is terminated, a break fee in the amount of US$300,000 (the "Break Fee") may be payable by Santa Fe to Tyhee, or by Tyhee to Santa Fe depending on the circumstances of such termination.

Santa Fe is currently subject to a cease trade order issued by the British Columbia Securities Commission dated November 25, 2003, and completion of the Bridge Loan (described below) will be subject to Santa Fe obtaining a revocation of such cease trade order sufficient to allow for the completion of the Bridge Loan and the Transaction.

Tyhee has agreed to lend Santa Fe US$3 million (the "Bridge Loan") to repay a portion of that company's accounts payable, with the first advance to be made on or before February 15, 2014. In the event that the Merger Agreement is terminated, the principal amount and interest outstanding, and expenses incurred by Tyhee in connection with the Bridge Loan may be, in certain circumstances at the option of Tyhee, converted into common shares of Santa Fe. If the funds for the Bridge Loan are not available by February 15, 2014, Santa Fe will have the right to terminate the Merger Agreement.

Compelling Transaction

The proposed business combination will maximize value for both Tyhee and Santa Fe shareholders, creating a combined company potentially benefiting from:


--  improved financial standing, with significantly improved liquidity and
    access to capital to properly capitalize the Summit mine for a return to
    full production, and enabling the Company to execute its strategy of
    building its production profile through additional acquisitions with
    near-term production potential;
--  being transformed into a developing precious metals production company
    with gold and silver production planned from Summit;
--  significantly enhanced development and exploration upside across a
    diverse portfolio of precious metals properties, including the Summit
    project in New Mexico as well as the large undeveloped gold resources
    (Feasibility Study - August 2012) at the YGP, NWT and the Ortiz project,
    NM.
--  Tyhee's highly experienced underground mining team that will be key to
    successful operations at Summit; and,
--  an expanded management team that includes complementary experience in
    exploration, development, operations, and financing

Denis Taschuk, Tyhee's Chairman of the Board, said, "We are all very pleased about the potential we see with this agreement. It has taken a tremendous amount of effort and cooperation from numerous parties, including Santa Fe's board and management as well as their debt holders and we are confident that we will see significant value generated for all of the stakeholders involved."

Santa Fe's Chairman, Jakes Jordaan, added, "We are extremely pleased to have found such an optimal fit in terms of both our combined assets and leadership teams, particularly given the unusually challenging times virtually everyone in our sector is facing. On behalf of Santa Fe's board, management and the Special Committee that supported this agreement, I want to thank everyone involved and we look forward to seeing the benefits we all agree are apparent in this exciting restructuring as the Summit Mine is properly brought back into production and expanded to its real potential as an integral part of Tyhee's ambitious growth plans."

Tyhee CEO, Brian Briggs stated, "This is precisely the sort of opportunity that my team and I have been looking forward to over the past several months as market conditions have affected the timing of our plan to bring the Yellowknife Gold Project into production. Although we remain committed to that longer term goal, we are extremely happy to be able to start producing gold at Summit and then to optimize this operation in line with our target of becoming a profitable new mid-tier, multi-project gold company."

Corporate Strategy

As previously announced, Tyhee has been aggressively pursuing new opportunities to enable the Company to benefit from gold production in 2014. This revised corporate strategy is aimed at enhancing Tyhee's shareholder value by taking advantage of corporate project opportunities available in the current challenged resource investment environment to generate cash-flow, accelerate growth and provide a strong platform on which to build a new multi-project gold mining company. At the same time, the Company will continue to progress its YGP, an advanced stage wholly-owned gold project in the development and permitting stage.

In line with this strategy, Tyhee also announced plans to create a special purpose vehicle (the "SPV"), through which funds of up to US$37.5 million are intended to be raised through an offering of secured, convertible debt (the "SPV Financing"). Closing on a minimum of US$20.0 million in the SPV Financing is a condition to the closing of the Transaction, and the Break Fee may be payable if such financing is not completed by March 15, 2014. The SPV Financing is expected to fund the proposed cash injection into the Summit Mine and Lordsburg Mill complex.

Up to 10 per cent of the funds raised through the SPV are to be used for general corporate purposes, including the ongoing development of Tyhee's YGP.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WILL BE FILED WITH THE SEC

In connection with the proposed transaction, Tyhee and Santa Fe intend to file relevant materials with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including the filing by Tyhee with the SEC of a Registration Statement on Form F-4 (the "Registration Statement"), which will include a preliminary prospectus and related materials to register the Tyhee Shares and Tyhee Warrants to be issued in exchange for Santa Fe common shares.

In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
